Welcome to Walker Community!

Located in the Bradshaw Mountains, south of Prescott, AZ, Walker Community is an old mining district, filled with history. It’s named after Joseph Walker, mountain man, explorer, and guide. He led a party to this valley to discover gold in the summer of 1863.

Today, the valley is filled with rustic cabins and elegant homes. There’s a vibrant community of people here, with an active social calendar. Some live here full-time, while others have second homes here.

Everyone loves it here.

Bluff Fire Statement From Walker Fire Dept.

Email from Walker Fire:

Today Walker Fire was dispatched to what came to be called the Bluff Fire in the middle of Potato Patch. Walker Patrol 85 was first on scene and sized the fire up to be about an acre (turned out to be a little bigger) with one structure involved. Patrol 85 was able to knock down the fire as it threatened the one structure keeping the damage to what amounted to a charred roof, no serious damage done inside home.

The response from Walker Fire as well as neighboring departments was tremendous. Hoping not to leave anyone out Walker […]

Snow on May 2, 2018

There was some rain on May 1, followed by about a quarter inch of snow on May 2.

It wasn’t much, but it was something, and everything helps.

Because it’s been in the 80s the last few days, I’m guessing that this is the last snow until Fall.

Trees are really dry here, so please be extra careful with fire, smoking, shooting, chain saws, and anything else that could cause a fire.

Waiting for the monsoons!
